Abagendana Acb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Abegendana Acb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from services to retail. The group’s name translates to “people who walk together” in English.

Clarisse is 40 years old, married with three children aged between 13 and 18 years, and is the group’s proud representative.

Clarisse owns a beauty salon and has been running this business for the past 8 years. Clarisse has requested this loan to buy more hair equipment and tools to use in her salon. This will enable Clarisse to meet customer demand so that she can have an income, helping her to raise her children and improve her lifestyle.

In the future, Clarisse plans to see her business grow to the level where she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support
